MEDFORD, Wis. (AP) — A 28-year-old Westboro man accused of shooting and wounding a Taylor County deputy sheriff has pleaded not guilty.
Alexander Schneider was charged with attempted first-degree homicide and five other felonies in the September 8th shooting of Deputy Chad Kowalczyk, who was hit once in the abdomen.
Kowalczyk was shot after he went to Schneider's home to investigate a woman's complaint that
Schneider had sent her at least 16 text messages that day, in violation of a restraining order.
Prosecutors say Schneider shot the deputy through the front door with a .22-caliber rifle.
The deputy has been cleared to return to work but the exact date has not been determined.
Schneider has been jailed on $1 million cash bond since his arrest. WAOW-TV reports no trial date was set.
